're in the "sideshow" now. another way for republicans to avoid getting support from low-income voters? enter tennessee state senator stacey campfield with this bold proposal. slash welfare benefits for parents whose kids do poorly in school. well, that's right. according to campfield, somehow the threat of less food on the table is the ticket to getting parents to help their kids in school. figure that one out. >>> anyway, something campfield said on this network was catnip for the folks at the tonight show. >>> tennessee state senator stacey campfield advocates he wants legislation that will reduce welfare payments to families if their kids are getting bad grades. they cut their welfare payments if the kids get bad grades. i'm not sure he did that well in school himself. this is a segment we call the botched cliche of the day senator edition. >> well, first off, we're not -- i'm not setting the bar like the kids have to become rocket surgeons. >> rocket surgeons. is that like tree surgeons? >>> next, let's take a look at this headline from the washington times. quote, reagan's home could become a par
and health departments across the south and many are seeing it. from knoxville, tennessee, "we're seeing that downturn." to north carolina, "looks like we peaked early." but it's not universal. even in the same states, some hospitals are still getting slammed. "our numbers don't yet reflect a downturn," a doctor from duke university hospital, also in north carolina, tells us. this year's flu season hit early, november 25th, a month earlier than a typical one. we're now six weeks into it, and if this year is like years past, we are likely to have six or more weeks to go. it's not too late to get some protection and today, the cdc provided first indication as to how well the vaccine is working. turns out it's 62% effective, meaning, if you got the vaccine you're 62% less likely to have to visit your doctor for the flu. but the cdc acknowledges there have been shortages of the vaccine, so our team fanned out across the country to see what they could find. in chicago. >> i'm going to log on to flu.gov to find the closest place to get a flu shot. >> reporter: at the pharmacy, success. >> do y
